A suspected felon who ran from an ICE agent Wednesday and barricaded himself in a restaurant's bathroom in Orange has been captured.According to Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams, the ICE agent attempted to arrest the 17-year-old suspect, who had been deported before because of drug and weapon offenses, at about 9:30 a.m. at Tacos Garcia, 918 N. Glassell St.

The suspect threw a metal object at the agent, but missed, and locked himself in the bathroom for hours, Adams said. Eventually, police apprehended the suspect in a crawl space inside the bathroom.

Police say the boy's mother, who reportedly owns the restaurant where her son works, eventually came outside and was detained.

The intersection of Glassell Street and Collins Street were closed earlier in the day.
